You Know Who Throws Awkward Office Christmas Parties?

This guy:
U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson filed a lawsuit Monday in an attempt to block the federal government from helping to pay for health care coverage for members of Congress and their staffs.
The lawsuit stems from a provision in the Affordable Care Act that requires members of Congress and their staffs to buy health insurance on the marketplaces set up through the law, which is also known as Obamacare.

A rule issued in October by the personnel office stated that the federal government could continue to contribute to pay the cost of health benefits for members of Congress and their staffs — just as it does for other federal employees — even though they would be buying health insurance on a marketplace.

'I value all of your efforts this past year, just not as much as I hate President Obama.'

'No, but seriously, help me out with this lawsuit-- your share of health insurance premiums isn't going to raise itself.'
